Lurgy

We are all sick this week, so there has been little knitting and no reading. I do however have this delightful Finished Object to share with the Yarn Along this week:


The pattern is the Christmas Morning Vest by Jennie Santopietro of A Lovely Homemade Life. I am sooo pleased with this, it will definitely be my go-to sleeveless jumper pattern from now on.


This was my first attempt at duplicate stitch, and I thought it was pretty bad. I'm going to label it "rustic" and run with it. The Harry Potter font charts are rather magical!


I found two tiny matching buttons in the button jar, so this was yet another project knitted entirely from stash. It's for Bob (what, you thought his name was Robert?), and it will be just the thing for him to wear to a wedding in Yorkshire next week. I have no idea what I'm wearing, but that's a whole other kettle of fish, right?


Hoping you have all managed to avoid the germs!

  4. The vest is fabulous. I think we are all more inclined to be critical of our own projects but you should be proud! Hope you and yours are feeling better and you haven't been to battered by the weather Tania ~hedgerowharvest~
